Hello all,
My paph delenatii is very faithful, and has bloomed again from a different growth. I think it was in bloom around 8 months or so ago and I was surprised to see it flowering again. It's been flowering for a while but this is the first I've been able to upload pictures.

angled closeup

the edge of one of the sepals is browned, but that is from taking it to our orchid club show table. I pack the plants in styrofoam peanuts and occasionally a flower will have minor damage

the pictures are a bit over-saturated, though it has solid color. for some reason I can open and edit a picture in canon digital photo pro and it looks perfect, but when I open it in photoshop or a web browser, they look overdone.

I can't smell anything, but my sinuses are usually packed tight so if it had a faint fragrance I wouldn't be able to smell it.

It usually due to the uncalibrated monitor. I use a spy pro monitor calibrator.

thanks. now if every slipper orchid i've tried to grow was as seemingly effortless as this one under my lights, then i'd be a lot happier camper! maybe it's the fact that it seems to be fairly resistant to mealybugs. two paph hirsutissimums died last summer because of mealy torture

Looks real good, like Rose said they're a nice plant to have in a collection. Jim.
